K so I think something has happened to my Motherboard in my second computer... and rather then just ditch it, I'd like to re-use as many parts as I can ^^

So if you could, please help me pick out a new Motherboard, I would also like to get a new case cause the one I have is just way too big. I know how to change many parts in a computer, but I've never really messed with a motherboard (or power supply) but I would really like to re-build this one as best I can ^^ If you have any videos or stuff that could help, please post these as well (I could always watch them on my main computer while re-building the old one) ^^

Edit: I think I might need to add a new harddrive as well actually.

Here's what in the downed computer right now:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Dual Core Processor LGA775 Conroe 2.67GHZ 1066FSB 4MB Retail

The Samsung F3 1TB is only $69.99 and is faster than most of the WD hard drives. It's becoming one of the most recommended hard drives.

Sorry to bother again XD I won't be needing 1TB tho since this is just for my second computer.

I'll probably just need maybe 500GB unless theres a plus to having a 1TB besides more space XD (tho I'll take that advice and probably get a 1TB for when i update this computer or get a whole new build) ^^

I'm trying to find these parts on (I'm in Ontario Canada)

I found the motherboard -

but thats about all x_X NCIX wasn't of much help either, is there any good Canadian sites that I can order from? (unless you can recommend substitutes of the other parts from

You can go to (the Canadian version). The prices are usually a lot better than TigerDirect's here in the States.
